Description

Colorful and flamboyant, Paradise Palms is widely celebrated as Las Vegas’ favorite desert modern, residential development!  With eye-catching designs and luxe living, the neighborhood proved a natural fit for the midcentury Las Vegas elite. Today, the popularity of the neighborhood continues among architectural and midcentury enthusiasts, and its design has largely been attributed to architects Palmer + Krisel of Palms Springs fame…but who was true master behind the plan?? We will reveal this and other secrets of Paradise Palms in this 2-hour stroll through all that was fabulous about mid-century modern living.
